first autocross in the BMW

It felt so weird not typing '...in the MINI' just now. My old car's gone, and my old ways of autocross are gone.

Well, 55 more horsepower and rear wheel drive do NOT make for a faster car, at least not without magical, R-compound race tires. There were some great moments though:

- Being second in class, despite having 100 fewer hp than one of the cars (Mazadaspeed 6) and no race tires (E36 323i w/Kumho Victoracers)

- two words: Throttle steering.

- finally having the option for understeer, oversteer, or 4 wheel drift at will...
